Addressing the National Housing Deficit with Urban Analytics Institute

The Urban Analytics Institute at Toronto Metropolitan University researches data-driven solutions to urban issues, producing insights on a variety of topics, focused mainly on real estate and housing economics, consumer finance and smart cities. Its current research explores the future of urban transportation given the broad switch to telework, and ways to increase housing supply in Canada and restore affordability.

In this session led by Dr. Murtaza Haider (Professor, Real Estate Management, TRSM), we will discuss UAI’s comprehensive review of the reasons behind the accumulation of a national housing deficit approaching four million dwelling units, and the changes in policy, strategies and designs needed to build housing at scale, with Assistant Professors in Real Estate Management Dr. Kiana Basiri and Dr. Anson Ho, and research associate Meet Shah.

We will be ending this session promptly to allow attendees to commemorate Remembrance Day.
